missed snipes

Posted: Jan 22 2010 08:31 PM

the pass two snipes I have made have missed completely due to "lag time"

What is going on here? Is there a glitch in your system that you need to correct as if this continues there is no point in using bidslammer!

The term lag refers to a slow response from eBay after the snipe is placed. I checked our log files to make sure the error was being reported correctly. Here is the result:


16:22:53 (snipe placed)

16:23:02 (auction ended)

16:23:03 (eBay response)


14:57:27 (snipe placed)

14:57:36 (auction ended)

14:57:36 (eBay response)

In both cases the snipes were executed on time, but the response from eBay was very late. We do see occasional cases of lag, it can't be avoided or fixed, but I have never seen two items in a row from one user. This is a very unusual circumstance.

I can assure you that our system is working properly. Let me know if you have further questions.

Kind regards,

John D.
